Getting to Innsbruck

Innsbruck is easy to reach from all directions by car, train, coach or plane. From Salzburg and Vienna, as well as from Germany, Italy and East Tyrol. This is thanks to the motorway systems, train connections and international airport. On this page, we've put together useful tips for your journey to the Innsbruck region.

By car and motorail

Innsbruck is located on many major traffic routes, which makes the region easily accessible by car. The well-developed road networks and good connections to Innsbruck, the state capital of Tyrol, make the journey easy and stress-free.

  • From Vienna: A12 motorway.
  • From Switzerland: A12 motorway. Through the Arlberg Road Tunnel or toll-free via the Arlberg region.
  • From Italy: A13 (Brenner motorway); tolls apply from the exit Innsbruck-Süd.
  • From East Tyrol: Take the Felbertauern tunnel toll road or go via the Puster Valley.

In the case of congestion, please observe the "Rettungsgasse" (emergency corridor), which was introduced in Austria on 01.01.2012. Read more here.
Please note that a "Vignette" (road tax disk) is required for travel on Austrian motorways. Read more here.

Environmentally conscious travellers who don’t want to be without a car can travel to Innsbruck by motorail:

By train

Relaxing, comfortable and safe – ideal rail connections and attractive rates make Innsbruck a great destination for eco-conscious train travellers. Travelling by rail is one of the best ways to guarantee plenty of time and space to enjoy the stunning scenery of Innsbruck and Tyrol. You can simply gaze out of the window and admire the mountains and picturesque alpine countryside before you've even arrived. Would you like to travel directly from the land of tulips and canals to the land of mountains and lederhosen? Nothing could be easier! The Nightjet runs directly from Amsterdam to Innsbruck every day. A direct night train also runs from Brussels, taking you straight from the heart of the EU to the heart of the Alps in less than 15 hours. Sleeping can be so efficient.

The numerous international rail connections from Innsbruck also make it very practical for getting to the European capitals and then onwards to your next holiday destination. There are connections, for example, to Munich, as well as top destinations in Italy. This means you can take advantage of your stay to fit in a short tour of the city before it's time to catch your connecting train. The main train station in Innsbruck is just a short walk from the city centre. The train station has lockers for your luggage, as well as supermarkets, cafes, bistros, fast-food restaurants, bakeries, newsagents and ATMs.

 

For even more savings during your Innsbruck stay, we've got just the thing for you: in combination with a train journey to the main train station in Innsbruck (Innsbruck Haupbahnof), you can get a 10% discount on the 24-hour Innsbruck Card. Available from all ÖBB ticket shops, all you have to do then is redeem your voucher at Innsbruck Information on Burggraben road, right by the old town. That way, sustainable travel pays off twice!

SparSchiene tickets
The ÖBBs SparSchiene tickets start from just € 9.90 and provide great connections to holiday fun, e.g. from Vienna, Berlin, Hamburg, Düsseldorf or Zurich. Concrete information about offers and prices can be found on the ÖBB Austrian Federal Railways website.

Mobile in Innsbruck and the Innsbruck region

Here you will find lots of useful information about public transport, parking in Innsbruck, taxi companies, car rentals and roadside assistance, as well as tips for people with limited mobility. 

Public transport

Innsbruck's public transport makes guests mobile without a car. The bus and tram routes operated by the Innsbrucker Verkehrsbetriebe, or the IVB for short, offer great connections around the clock. If you want to enjoy Innsbruck's nightlife, you can take advantage of the good connections offered by the "Nightliner" night buses. There is also a dense network of regional buses, trams and trains that connects Innsbruck with the nearby villages and surrounding regions. These links are operated by the Verkehrsverbund Tirol (VVT)Single tickets are available from the driver. Our tip: tickets are cheaper if you buy them at the ticket machines located at the bus and tram stops than from the driver.

 

The following widget allows you to plan a journey out of the city of Innsbruck. If you want to travel from one of the holiday villages into Innsbruck, you can find the information you need here. The VVT timetable provides information for journeys from Innsbruck into the surrounding regions. It shows all forms of transport for journeys within Austria, from buses and trains to trams. 

Park & Ride

A stroll through the city is now even more relaxing! Thanks to the Park & Ride facilities, high mobility is guaranteed without the hassle of having to search for parking in the city centre. Detailed information about the Park & Ride options can be found here.

Parking in Innsbruck

There are various different parking zones in Innsbruck with different maximum parking durations and fees. This map shows the car parks, multi-storey car parks and garages in the city, as well as the public transport stops. Click on the parking icons for more information about parking durations and prices. Road signs also provide information about maximum parking times and there are payment machines located along the roads. Display the receipt from the parking machine behind your windscreen. Parking is free outside of the stated times. This means, for example, that you can park for free on Sundays and overnight in certain short-term parking zones. Again, please pay attention to the parking information signs on roads or ask a local resident to be on the safe side. 

Do not park in spaces that are marked with white lines. These are reserved for residents with special permits. If you park there, you might get a ticket. 

Our tip: Use the Park & Ride facility (P & R) at Tivoli. You can park your car there for a whole day for a set rate. The use of public transport within the city is included for up to 5 people. Ideal for day trips, sightseeing or shopping, at one price for the whole family.

The towns and villages outside of Innsbruck have their own parking regulations.
